La Jolla Racquet Club, Unit D-18
NOTE: This property has been sold.
The La Jolla Racquet Club (LJRC) is perfect for those who want privacy and independence in a location close to the beach but also close to UCSD, shopping, Interstate 5 and Highway 52. This classic mid-century, resort-style condominium complex was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's protégé Loch Crane. The courtyard entrance brings you past lush tropical plantings, the pool and tennis courts to this unique corner unit with a private patio. Built in 1966, LJRC retains its "retro" style but this unit features upgrades including a kitchen remodel in 2012, and wiring for cable, twisted-pair and satellite entertainment/Internet services.
This 2BR, 2BA 1,192 square foot unit is unique in several ways, and features amenities that may be hard to find in even the most luxurious condos, including a real fireplace and exclusive patio (with a cactus over 25 feet tall, and yes...you can use a grille on the patio).
Other features include one indoor reserved parking space, plus guest parking & street parking, laundry room right next door to unit (unit also has washer & dryer hook-ups if you have your own machines), spa, on-site manager, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer with icemaker, microwave, and garbage disposal. A Verizon Wireless network extender is provided for the duration of tenancy to help assure "all bars" signal strenth capability via tenant's cable Internet connection.
If you commute anywhere outside La Jolla, living in "the Shores" can save you ten minutes or more every day when compared to living in La Jolla's Village, Bird Rock or Muirlands areas because of easier access to local freeways. La Jolla Shores is home to UCSD and is the most highly coveted residential area of La Jolla. La Jolla Shores features one of the largest beaches in San Diego County.
LJRC is in the Torrey Pines Elementary, Muirlands Middle & La Jolla High School public school district. It's walking distance to The Children's School (private K~8th), and an easy drive to The Bishops School, The Gillispie School, The Evans School and The Montessori Institute of San Diego.
Pets: We love pets, but safety is our top priority and LJRC has its own rules & restrictions regarding pets. See details of our pet policy here.
